Receiving a Casket or Urn from our Donors Requirements

We do not have many donors at this time. When we have donated funds, and the person in need qualifies, we can provide a casket or urn. We can only offer a casket/urn if there are donated funds available. We do not send out money. There are steps that we require those requesting a casket or urn to follow before we give the casket or urn. These steps are found below.

We are very sorry about the loss of your baby. We do have a very small amount of donated funds that we can use for families experiencing loss who cannot afford a casket or urn. We only provide a casket or urn. We do not help with funeral expenses or burial expenses. In order to qualify for a donated casket or urn, there are some qualifications. This must be done directly by the mother and not family members.

Whether or not you get a casket from us our peer support services are free.

  1. You must prove financial need:  Fill out application and send proof of financial need.
  2. You must be willing to write a thank you note to our donor family that explains your situation in two paragraphs or more. These donating families are trusting us with part of their paycheck and we try to be good stewards of their donation. To show appreciation for their hard earned donation, we require a scanned copy of the letter/note written to the donor family from you thanking them for the donation to cover the cost.
  3. You must not be receiving funds from another organization to help with the casket or urn for the baby.
  4. We will only send caskets or urns ground shipping or priority mail. We do not send out caskets or urns express mail
  5. If you have any questions please email heavensgain@heavensgain.org
